donnell, who died at sandy hook elementary. the president met the family privately during the newtown memorial service. it was there that grace's father gave the president one of her paintings. it now hangs in the study next to the oval office. >> every time i look at that painting, i think about grace, and i think about the life that she lived and the life that lay ahead of her. and most of all, i think about how when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now. >> reporter: the white house will not send a comprehensive gun control bill to congress. top white house officials say hardening opposition there to a push to ban future sales of assault weapons and high- ammunition magazines may interfere with the push for universal background checks on all firearm sales and a new gun trafficking law. those last two will be dealt with separately, and though they don't attract the biggest headlines, the white house believes they can pass, and, scott, they believe it might do the most good. >> pelley: major, thank you. one of the newtown children who wrote the president is nata

to the nation, are we a nation that's better than what happened to the children in sandy hook? are we a nation better than what we saw 50 years ago in birmingham, alabama? so the question is, just as someone so eloquently stated, they're killing our babies. but that was sort of the turning point. >> what do you want to hear from the president on monday when he gives his inaugural speech? what do you want to hear? >> i want to hear him have an extension of what was, i call it, a political program when he got the biden recommendations. essentially, i want him to have a nonviolent call to arms and say to the nation that i am taking this oath of office, commemorating the 84th birthday of the american apostle of nonviolence, and i think that we, as a nation, can do no less to summon the better angels of ourselves to, at this time, at this place, to rededicate ourselves irrevocably to nonviolent resolution where violence is the choice of gun and violence is not a rational option. that's the best way we can honor that extraordinary man. >> very quickly, the president will be taking the oath, using tw
to hurt anybody. when the sandy hook tragedy happened and i saw it on the news, my heart was broken, no more, no less than the amish school shooting, columbine or aurora. i think they are all tragic and hurts me. i hate to see people do that to each other. but, no, no, i have never seen myself as a danger to myself or to others and my doctor, my mental health professional said the same thing. i'm forth coming and i'm honest. that's it. host: we appreciate your story and your time very much this morning on "the journal." . chris in virginia will be our last call on mental health and gun violence. chris, hang on for just one second and going to show you the new lines. we'll keep chris on the air. but for this last half hour in our discussion about the president's gun control proposals, your reaction, we want to hear about the issue of police presence in schools. are you in favor of that. what do you think about increasing the police presence. the n.r.a. has called for armed guards at schools or carrying laws for teachers, we want to know about increased security or police presence at
this other story, there's been a lot of discussion about guns in schools, and guns in general after the sandy hook sad situation in december in connecticut. and now there's a kindergarten girl who apparently owns one of these little devices, you look at the screen at hello kitty bubble gun. apparently, she was talking about this toy at school. it's my understanding she actually didn't even have the toy with her at the mt. carmel area school in pennsylvania. as a result of just talking about shooting bubbles at one another, apparently she received a ten-day suspension. it was reduced to two days, but that's kind of unclear now whether or not she should even have faced any kind of suspensi suspension. >> steve: well, this is kind of crazy the two five-year-old girls were waiting at the bus, hey, i'm going to shoot you with my hello kitty bubble machine and somebody overheard it and next thing you know, just because people are, you know, freaked out about guns since sandy hook, the school got involved. and she was suspended for ten days, and then reduced it to two. but she was also given, becaus
the purchases. each aircraft costs $200 million. wolf? >> sandy endo what does all of this mean for the future of the dreamliner? miles o'brien is a pilot and correspondent on pbs and an old friend. is it safe to fly, you think, these dreamliners? did the faa do the right thing? zf well >> well, you know, it's better to error on the side of the caution. there's no dreamliners in the sky so whether it's safe or not doesn't matter to you or i. i guess by definition it's unsafe because the faa has taken this very unusual action of grounding a whole fleet of airplanes. this happened with a dc-10 in 1989 after killing everyone on board. that was a maintenance issue, but the dc-10 aircraft ultimately never recovered its reputation. >> if these batteries are overheating, would that be enough to actually bring down a plane? >> you bet. fire on an airplane is one of the scariest things you can imagine. we've seen a couple of crashes in recent years involving fires from airplanes. of course, you remember value jet outside of miami. you remember the swiss air crash off the coast
in the month since sandy hook, we realize this is a huge problem for our society, and is undermining our constitution. so we said we have to step up. we have got a lot on our plate, but this is one issue we need to speak up about so we're doing it. >> stephanie: absolutely. and sister it is interesting -- i don't know which statistic sounds worse, but i think one of the parents at sandy hook were saying that 85% of the children that were killed in the world are killed here. >> oh, my glory, i hadn't heard that one. oh, my glory. >> stephanie: yes. >> i did get to be at the president's unveiling of this program, and when he spoke of the one child grace whose picture he keeps in his private study, i thought oh my heavens that's it. when we have a specific person who is lost to all of us whose gifts are lost to all of us because of the senseless violence. >> stephanie: that's right. when you see the pictures -- the parents of -- rachel madoux did an interview of one of the parents and they said their duty as parents will never end and they feel it is their responsib
a special task force to develop responses to the tragedy not only at sandy hook elementary school, but the daily tragedies we see all across america. the nation's mayors and vice president biden have stood together for many, many years in support of public safety. after all, it was then-senator joe biden who championed the crime bill, which established the cops program and included the ban on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines, which congress unfortunately, allowed to expire. yesterday, i was personally very proud to be in the white house as president obama and vice president biden unveiled a strong, comprehensive package of legislative and regulatory reforms needed to response to the ongoing gun violence in america's cities and suburbs. seey day america's mayors the carnage caused by illegal guns and assault weapons that have no place on our nation's streets. working with president obama, vice president biden and the congress, we will make sure that the changes that are needed to protect our children are made. ladies and gentlemen, u.s. conference of mayors, welcome bac
the trauma of the sandy hook massacre the urgent call to limit easy access to guns have met resistance and exposed the divide over firearms. president has offered 23 different executive actions which would strengthen background checks better address mental health and call for armed officers for schools that want them. politics are fraught with danger for the president. there are 20 democratic senate seats up for grabs in 2013 including in arkansas, alaska, iowa, louisiana, colorado, new hampshire and south dakota which suggests that any gun control measures will have to be a compromise. >> everyone is trying to divert from the core issue which is there is a huge consensus in the country, including a vast majority of republicans that assault weapons, high capacity magazines, universal background checks, making progress on mental health, these are things that we should and can do. >> i think we can do something about mental health, about information sharing, maybe about background checks and other things, but it has to be a plan that could possibly work or the president won't get it done

hurricane sandy that hit the whole east coast -- people have been warning for years with the rising sea levels, the more intense storms, the climate change that we have to get our infrastructure right. we thought we found that out from hurricane katrina. of course, we did nothing because our government is not responding to any of the major challenges we have in this country. the idea, starting around 1981, was to star of the beast, so- called, to just get the size of the government down -- to start -- to starve the beast. one of the problems we have is an underclass that cannot find its way out and no longer has any kind of helping hand. >> i think jeffrey sachs just shanked you. and being funny. i thought i heard him say that one of the mistakes we made was back in the 1980's when you were around and running things. one of the mistakes was making our priority all about shrinking government. >> jeffrey sachs and i have a fundamental disagreement, and i suspect most of this panel will have a fundamental disagreement about a couple of facts. it is a fact that this coming march is the 49th
